IMPACT - The DCPS Effectiveness Assessment System for School Leaders
Recognizing the importance of ensuring that talented and committed individuals are serving all of our students, DCPS developed IMPACT, our system for assessing the performance of school-based staff, teachers, and school leaders. To create IMPACT for school leaders we solicited principal and assistant principal feedback through focus groups, one-on-one conversations, feedback sessions and the Chancellor’s monthly Principal Cabinet.
Through IMPACT, DCPS seeks to create a culture in which all school leaders have a clear understanding of what defines excellence in their work, are provided with constructive and data-based feedback about their performance and receive support to increase their effectiveness.
